On this rainy Sunday I wanted to post something sunny and thought about this photo on the western coast of Öland, a Swedish island in the Baltic sea.
There is no real difference in waterlevels due to tide effects in the Baltic sea. This is because not enough water flows in through the Oresund and Store Baelt (in Denmark) at high tide and out at low to cause a tidal effect on the eastern side of Sweden. In the same way the Baltic sea is getting breckish because the influx of water from the rivers is larger then the influx of salt water through the Oresund and Store Baelt.

Hi Harko, this is a striking image. The simplicity of the scene makes it stand out more strongly, and I like the composition with the lone tree placed slightly off-centre. Congratulations on seeing the photographic potential of this scene. Regards,

The tree looks like totally misplaced there, and it is hard to understand how it could have survived the harsh weather conditions during winter time...
Wonderful composition, good diagonal and well balanced!

I really like this one, the lonely tree standing by the sea. Great POV, light and colours!

Très bien composé, cet arbre solitaire au bord de la mer. Très beau format panoramique, beau rendu des couleurs. J'aime beaucoup

Minimal composition for a very graphical effect. The succession of these four bands each of them with different material and color is very good. The tree finishes to compose this beautiful landscape.
Very weel seen and done !
Best regards, Christian

Sometimes the simplest of things pays of best, like this picture here. Nothing spectacular but its simplicity is its asset.

It's allmost that you feel sorrow for the poor tree at the shore, it really looks lonely.
its a very nic picture of exposure. It's one of thos motiv that I would go back in different time of the the day, in different weather and during different time of the year.
